    Very nice shoes. I like that oiled green leather a lot on the Alt Wiens I have. It wears very nicely IMO. Enjoy!

    I hope the flash is making the color look like that. Making me have second a thoughts on ordering that color.

    I have a pair of oiled green calf and they sure look different under natural daylight....they are decidedly green but the opposite of bright green....more muted.

    Whereas bozz's shoes look to me what I would call olive. I think its the lighting conditions and the camera settings.

    thanks guys, i'm gonna test them tomorrow and gonna give some follow ups

    without flash, the colour is not too olive, a little muted, but there's still so much sheen in the shoes,
    i think Ascot must've polish them first before shipment?

    yep. they'serves as casual shoes, as for last i kinda like pointy toe
    and my work environment didn't care what kind of shoes you wear , as long it's not flip flops...

    for some comparison i'm gonna take a pic in sunlight tomorrow

    my first pair of Vass: F last OE II in oxblood, size 40.5 in H width. There is hope for us really wide footed people!

    They fit wonderfully but are a little snug on the top of my foot around the bottom two laces/eyelets. Is this due to the high instep or low tow box on the F last? I am hoping they loosen up after a few wears, but is there a similar last that might fit me better considering these issues? Can't wait to start working on another pair.

    These look very nice. Great choice. And the photo shows the oxblood color well.

    I am hoping to have some F last coming in this week and am looking forward to seeing how they fit me. I hope yours loosen up that little bit that you need.

    Here's a shot of my R-last Budapesters on my feet. Fairly heavily cropped and so I hope the photo quality isn't too poor.

    Awesome shoes. Didn't know they have H fitting. What's your size in AE/American, EG, or JL?
